Banglalink's revenue rose 17.7 per cent year-on-year to Tk 1,462 crore in the first quarter of 2023, on the back of data revenue.
Mobile subscriber numbers witnessed a solid growth in March, thanks to a strong performance by all but state-owned operator Teletalk.
Banglalink registered a double-digit growth rate in its revenue in 2022 driven by increased investment in 4G network, expanding coverage and enhancing network speed.
Banglalink, one of the leading digital communications service providers in Bangladesh, has touched the milestone of four crore subscribers.
The expanded network has enabled more customers across the country to enjoy its fastest 4G network and quality digital services.
Four private telecom operators -- Grameenphone, Banglalink, Robi, and Airtel -- owe an amount of Tk2,413 crore to the government which remains due as VAT on 2G spectrum fees and licence fees, said the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC).
